KUCHING, April 4: Kota Sentosa assemblyman Wilfed Yap, representatives from the Padawan Municipal Council (MPP), and Sentosa Hospital have convened this afternoon to finalise plans for the much-needed upgrade of Sentosa Hospital’s facilities.

These include the construction of additional car parks and renovations to the hospital’s occupational therapy hall.


According to a press release issued today by Yap, the finalisation includes the bill of quantities, scope of works, and technical design drawings, as well as plans for the proposed construction of additional carparks and upgrading works such as tiling, partitioning, and the installation of sliding windows and eleven air conditioners for Sentosa Hospital’s occupational therapy hall.

“The unsatisfactory condition of the occupational therapy hall, as well as a lack of parking spaces and people parking on the roadside, causing traffic inconveniences for visitors and outpatients seeking treatment at Sentosa Hospital, were brought to my attention last year, and the hospital requested funding.

“I hope that the approved allocation of RM400,000 under my Rural Transformation Programme (RTP) project for the upgrade of the occupational therapy hall and the construction of additional car parks, which is currently awaiting Ministry of Health approval, can be implemented and completed as soon as possible for the benefit of staff, patients, and visitors,” he was quoted as saying in the press release.

Yap also stated that he is aware of the numerous poor and unsatisfactory infrastructure in certain areas of Kota Sentosa that must be addressed immediately.

The Kota Sentosa assemblyman also appealed for the public’s patience, stating that many of the issues confronting the Kota Sentosa constituency have been long-standing and existed before he was elected. — DayakDaily
